Cool To all of those conformationally Challanged horse owners out there...

You got nothin' on Bear and I! ;]

I went out to take some pictures of Bear yesterday evening, and I just now looked at the pictures more closely... And MAN do I have one conformationally challanged horse! With that beautiful low set neck and hunter bump, what else could be wrong? Well, lets see... He is over at the knee, his back hooves are small, his back legs are stocked up (due to cold weather and not being worked), or yeah and he has a wormy belly (getting wormed tomorrow hopefully).

So, share your pictures of your conformationally challaged beauties and point out their major flaws! Everyone will still love them the same... I think... ;]

Over-the knee isnt that bad xenaphon said: Over the knee is way better then behind the knee, because if the knee is behind it gets a lot more pressure then a over knee. I think bear is cute!! I like him

Let me see if I can find a decent pic of Blue...He's not 'horrible', but certainly not 'perfect'; he looks slightly like a couple of horses put together...

Okay, not the greatest pic, but his front and rear ends are unequal...smaller rear, heavy front...he has a really heavy, long face for a QH...makes him look cute, but homely at the same time!

Long already starting to slope, front pasterns

I wouldn't say that Java has a really bad conformation, but his back legs are a little weird.

Cody toes in on his left front, otherwise, I think he's darn perfect!

Our paint, Tahoe is forward at the knees a little but I don't keep any pictures of that!

Haha, I looked at a pic of cody the other day and wondered that. I recognize the rotated cannon. Dobe has that too, on both front legs.

Hm, lets see. Long-ish back, post legged, mule footed on the back, steep shoulder, square butt, pigeon toed, short upright pasterns, thick necked......

But here is one that is even better. Short, thick neck, short back, short legs, straight shoulder, funny looking butt, big ugly head with pig eyes and a moose nose, big ears, big feet, big bones, camps out, toes out front and hind.
(he's in middle. Also shows Dobe's pigeon toes really well)

This is his most unflattering pic.

And Denny isn't awful but he would be a lot better looking and nicer to ride if he weren't so angular. Steep shoulder and croup, post legged, short back, short pasterns, high head set.
